Returning to Canmore after performances at the Canmore Folk Music Festival, JUNO award winning singer-songwriter Cara Luft is that rare artist steeped in folk and traditional roots music almost from birth, yet willing to alter the fabric, stretch the boundaries and fearlessly bend genres and styles.

A founding member of Canadian folk super-group The Wailin' Jennys and the brainchild/bandleader of Winnipeg's acclaimed powerhouse duo The Small Glories, Luft deserves her solid reputation as one of Canada’s finest live performers, armed with amazing tenacity, vision, energy and a contagious hilarity.

To quote the roots magazine No Depression, “Luft has a rich tradition in folk music – it’s safe to assume that she knows her stuff – and upon listening it becomes quite clear that she is indeed a formidable songwriter and performer... [The] lovely Ms. Luft sets the bar for the talented few who’ll follow in her footsteps.”  

Cara has a spirit that drives her to connect with people, and for this she is loved everywhere she goes. In 2011 she branched out into instructing at music camps for adults and teens, discovering an immense joy and skill in helping others tap into their own creativity. Cara’s the real deal, there’s nothing pretentious about her. And that sense of honesty, integrity, personality and spontaneity permeates both her music and her live shows.

“Long may she reign!” (Lonesome Highway) 
The Doggone Brothers

The Doggone Brothers

Homey, approachable, irreverent, and uplifting are all words that describe the Doggone Brothers Band well. The music is acoustic-grassy, with a dash of old country and a side of old-time music throughout their set of original, traditional and cover tunes. This group brings a unique flavour to any stage—you can count on it being a doggone good time!

This Kootenay-based band is Clayton Parsons on banjo, guitar and dobro, and Michael Hepher on mandolin, octave mandolin, and guitar. Rounding out the sound is Leah Gardner on fiddle, and Rhonda Shippy on upright Bass.
